Each Fall, Medicare patients have about six weeks to sign up, renew, or change Medicare Advantage or Medigap insurance. Starting November 1 and ending December 15, 2017, Medicare patients must make a decision about insurance for 2018. Each county has a different set of insurance companies offering plans. Some counties have very limited choices and the choices may be different than those offered in 2017. If you are confused and overwhelmed, we recommend talking with the knowledgeable folks at VibrantUSA. Just call 866-733-5111 and tell them “Creelman Family Practice” referred you.
